DNC Chairman Thomas Perez called Wednesday for the resignation of Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), amid a growing number of sexual misconduct allegations centered around the senator.

Perez statement on Twitter came shortly after several Democratic women senators called for Franken’s resignation in a rapidly issued series of statements. Earlier on Wednesday, a seventh woman had come forward to accuse the Minnesota Democrat of sexual misconduct.

“Sen. Al Franken should step down,” Perez wrote on Twitter. “Everyone must share the responsibility of building a culture of trust and respect for women in every industry and workplace, and that includes our party.”
